Pop-up Satellite Tag Pacific Halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) Temperature data, Gulf of Alaska (2000-2002)

Andrew Seitz
To maintain healthy commercial and sport fisheries for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis), critical habitat must be defined by determining life history patterns on a daily and seasonal basis. Pop-up satellite archival transmitting (PSAT) tags provide a fisheries-independent method of collecting environmental preference data (depth and ambient water temperature) as well as daily geolocation estimates based on ambient light conditions. In this study, 14 adult halibut (107-165 cm FL) were tagged and released with PSAT tags...

PWSRCAC Long-Term Environmental Monitoring Program, 1993-2009

Joe Banta, Marie L. Larsen, James R. Payne, William B. Driskell, Mark Swanson & Jeffrey W. Short
Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council (PWSRCAC) Long Term (oil) Monitoring Program data from mussel tissues, intertidal and subtidal sediments from fixed monitoring sites in Prince William Sound, Outer Kenai Coast and Kodiak, Alaska. Since 1993, the council has monitored samples from mussels and sediments at 10 sites in Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska. The samples are monitored for the presence of petroleum hydrocarbons. Samples are collected in summer and late...

Pacific Herring (Clupea pallasi) sample data from Sitka Sound, Alaska (2007-2008)

Heather Meuret-Woody & Nate Bickford
The primary objective of this project was to obtain information leading to better identification of essential fish habitat in Prince William Sound. The data here are include information on herring samples pulled from Sitka Sound in Alaska for otolith analysis as well as site locations. By using trace element signatures of edge portions of juvenile herring otoliths, we identified the otolith chemical signature of individual rearing bays within Sitka Sound. We used trace element signatures...

Assessing prey of pink salmon fry from zooplankton net catch data in Prince William Sound, Alaska: 2001

Richard Thorne & Gary Thomas
This particular dataset focuses on zooplankton net catch data from Spring 2001. Multi-frequency acoustic/net sampling assessments of the pink salmon food supply and predators were conducted in Prince William Sound during spring 2001. Five cruises were completed between April 18 and June 15, 2001. The results of this monitoring were in sharp contrast with observations from the previous year. Overall the abundance of large copepods (primarily Neocalanus) was much lower in 2001. The abundance was...

Evaluating Harlequin Duck Population Recovery: CYP1A Monitoring and Population Data (2006, 2007, 2009)

Dan Esler
Harlequin ducks have been studied extensively in Prince William Sound during the restoration phase following the Exxon Valdez oil spill, leading to one of the most thorough considerations of wildlife population injury and recovery following a major oil spill ever undertaken. These efforts have included population monitoring by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, as well as a series of directed research projects designed to elucidate the...

Cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden char inventory in Prince William Sound, Alaska: 1997

Merlyn Schelske, Ken Hodges & David Schmid
Research on anadromous Dolly Varden char (Salvelinus malma) and cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki) in Prince William Sound has been hampered by the lack of basic information on their distribution. Earlier studies stated that there are only a few streams in Prince William Sound with these species, but after consultation with local residents, it appeared these fish were more widespread than previously believed. Given these uncertainties, we consulted local residents, government agencies, Native groups, and other...

Harbor seal monitoring in southern Kenai Peninsula fjords, Alaska: 1979 - 2007

Anne Hoover-Miller, Caroline Jezierski & Shannon Atkinson
Abstract: Harbor seals in Aialik Bay, a tidewater glacial habitat on the Kenai Peninsula, have been monitored since 1979 by field observations and remotely controlled video cameras. From 1980-2002 mean numbers of pups, adjusted for environmental conditions, declined 88% from 148 to 18 pups and remained stable through 2007 while seals counted during molt declined 82% from 801 seals to 141seals. Since 2002, numbers of molting seals have shown rapid growth of 21%/yr, coincident with...

Local questionnaire on historic size and harvest amounts of Katharina tunicata along the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska: 2003 - 2004

Anne Salomon & Jennifer Ruesink
We investigated the relative roles of natural factors and shoreline harvest leading to localized declines of the black leather chiton, Katharina tunicata, on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. Field surveys of the significant predictors of K. tunicata across 11 sites suggest that its current spatial variation is significantly related to human exploitation and sea otter predation. Traditional ecological knowledge further revealed that several benthic marine invertebrates (sea urchin, crab and clams) have declined sequentially, with reduced...

Fatty acid signatures for harbor seals and their prey in and around Prince William Sound, Alaska

Kathryn Frost, Sara Iverson, Lloyd Lowry, Mike Simpkins & Jay Ver Hoef
Study History: Restoration Project 01064 began in 1993 as a continuation of the initial post-spill study effort conducted as Marine Mammal Study Number 5 (Assessment of Injury to Harbor Seals in Prince William Sound, Alaska, and Adjacent Areas) in 1989 through 1991 and reclassified as Restoration Study Number 73 (Harbor Seal Restoration Study) in 1992. A final report was issued in 1994 for the combined Marine Mammal Study Number 5 and Restoration Study Number 73,...
